. a strange, wandering paths that met here from my father 60 years ago reciting a churchill to sandy -- i am a feature writer who meets manchester. i am not a big believer in fate, but these were a bunch of ships that in fact did not pass in the night. i could not imagine all these paths meeting enjoining -- and here we are. >> back to the riding aspect of it itself -- how did you write? long hand corner or -- give us the atmosphere where you wrote and what kind of day and what did you write with? >> i would mark -- i would try to color code them. my office looks like someone who really needs mental health help. it looked messy, but there was method in the madness. i wrote directly to the computer -- the word processor. and i would write -- i do not want to say drafts. i would rewrite the same two or three pages eight or 10 or 12 times and then attach them to the previous three and go on to the next three. very slowly. some days -- i averaged less than a page today over those years. >> a page of double spaced copy? >> yes. >> did you print it out after you wrote it, or did it all we stay on
